Brittany Spaniels, also known simply as the Brittany, are compact medium-sized dogs that appear leggy. They have impressive strength and vigor to match their energetic drive and quick movements. Their medium length coat features splotches of color on the face and body and may be tricolor, liver and white, or black and white. This breed can be born with tails, with naturally docked tails or completely without tails. According to the AKC, the appropriate length for their tail is about four inches. Brittany Spaniels also have short drop ears high atop their heads and may even have freckles. Unlike most other dogs, the Brittany’s first love is not people but actually birds. They make exceptional pointing dogs thanks to their keen sense of smell. They are the most popular breed for pointing field trials, as they are the only spaniel that points to game. With an unmatched ability to obey as well as point, Brittiany Spaniels or Epagneul Bretons aim to please their owners. They are agreeable dogs for children and get along well with other pets. Take care not to rough house these spaniels as they can become too excited around some children. This breed makes wonderful search dogs having been originally bred for searching out woodcock in France. The mild temperament and colorful spirit of the Brittany makes this breed a fantastic hunter and companion.
